If we want to use a CMS, we had to decide, if we want to use Plone, which some of the

I never used the OOoAuthors structures intensively, but recently the Italian 
documentation team expressed their desire to see the infrastructure upgraded to Plone 4, for 
performance reasons. So they they were thinking of a "vertical" Plone to Plone migration rather 
than a complete migration, and I think the same would apply to documentation for LibreOffice.

Plone is a good CMS, and if it works well for the documentation team, then it makes sense to 
continue using it. However, I know the focus of the OOoAuthors project has been to produce PDFs and 
printed books, but there is a good reason to also work on thorough, online, HTML documentation for 
LibO in the future. (We do have the documentation wiki already: )

If you're interested in online Drupal documentation, the best example I can recommend is the Drupal 
site's documentation itself:

Both in terms of workflow and final output, it meets the needs I think we have for LibO. From a 
user perspective, hosting it at an easy URL like "" would be very 
important, and thus it should be integrated into our core CMS.
